"I can say with confident, genuine and welcome invigoration that Chase is everything you do not expect. His semi-baritone operatic depths could deceive you into thinking you are hearing a seasoned veteran vocalist the 40 something age mark, but this rare talent is barely pushing 21". Hughie Dixon, Hayes FM radio.
"It’s been a busy life, but it’s no wonder that his music is bursting with optimism and energy despite the haunting melodic invention of You Don’t Need to Cry Anymore." "It really is a wonderful track that pulls you in and wraps itself around like you a hug from a long-missed friend." Richard Dowling, Fresh Faves Nov 8, 2016
Chase is one of the UK's top British & French bilingual speaking voice over talent. He has a clear, young, natural, and friendly voice with a warm timbre playing between 15 and 35 years old in a low to mid register.
